Monticello Aug. 31. 05.
Your letter of the 19th. has been duly recieved, & I now inclose you a small parcel of the Jerusalem wheat which I recieved from a gentleman in Ireland. the parcel sent me had before been so subdivided & parcelled out, to ensure it, that I am obliged to send you but a small portion. wishing you success in it’s preservation, I tender you my salutations & respects.
